Songs of Cricket – The London Quartet

Since the 1980s, Cantabile (also known as The London Quartet) has been wowing audiences across the world with shows that blend performance flair, comic timing, and a deep passion for high-quality vocal music.

An eclectic tribute to the very British obsession that is cricket, this album brings together works from the turn of the century (school songs from Harrow and Eton) to the present day (‘Jiggery Pokery’ from the 2009 Ivor Novello nominated album The Duckworth-Lewis Method) – as well as from the well known (Roy Harper’s ‘When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease’) to the obscure (‘The Summer Game’ from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s little-known musical Cricket, commissioned for the Queen’s sixtieth birthday). Featuring guest performances by the likes of Richard Stilgoe, Rory Bremner, and Tim Rice, the album should prove a must-buy for cricket – and music – fans alike.



"This is, to put it mildly, a class product. A King’s Singers for the world today ... performances are near-perfect. Arrangements are expert. out of the very top drawer..."

Colin Clarker - Fanfare - March /April 2012


"An absolute riot for cricket fans, this is quite an extraordinary collection of cricket music ... Everywhere the London Quartet expend gallons of good-humoured gusto ..."  *****

Andrew Green - Classical Music  (Choral 2012) magazine
